No problems with audio over S/PDIF here. In testing over the past 36
hours I've not noticed any differences from the previous
firmware. dmesg reports that it is version 0x15, not 0x12.

I've never seen the video and audio desync in two months of using the
HD-PVR, perhaps because I don't subscribe to Dish Network. I do hope
the new firmware fixes the issue in which the HD-PVR occasionally
stops responding to commands and requires a power cycle; I've seen it
happen twice in the month or so since it came back from warranty
